Welcome to our Contra Dancing Site!

Add Our Upcoming Dances to Your Calendar


Jan. 10th, at the River Falls Lodge, we will be having a Board Meeting to start at 2:30 P.M. with a potluck to follow at 6:30 P.M.  Any dancer is welcome to come to either or both. 


Starting with the September 12th dance, the admission costs for ages 14-17 will increase from $5 to $8 at both the River Falls Lodge and Landmark Hall dances.  This will make the same admission costs of everyone 14 and older to be $8.


Please do not park, even part way, on the highway or the circle (River Falls Road or River Falls Lodge Road) including the bridge.  Instead park fully on the grass.  We want to make the roads clear for emergency vehicles to be able to easily get through.  We also do not want to have any problems with any law officials.  If possible, car pool to save on parking space.  Thank you for your attention on this matter.

Consider serving a term (or two) on our board. Harvest Moon Folk Society is always looking for a few good folks who would help give back to the contra dancing community. More information from any board member, or at the entry desk at any RFL dance.
